Becoming A Certified Wellness Coach Has Never Been More Important or Accessible

A Professional Certified Wellness Coach (CWC) is a valued health professional with specific skills and training.  As Coaches, we facilitate behavior change in clients that is supported by addressing the changes in mindset and awareness. Client behaviors are brought to the forefront, using part science and part artistic form. Once trained in the application of Coach actions, the Wellness Coach Professional can create a solid practice that meets the needs of any client, regardless of circumstances. The specific tools needed for success are included in this program, as part of a coaching model that is built to help others change, thrive and flourish. 

Why Get Certified?

Coaching, Elevated

Wellness is a collective term, meaning that it is somewhat holistic in nature.  It can include emotional, environmental, intellectual, professional, physical, social and spiritual factors.   A lifelong process, achieving wellness requires increasing awareness and knowledge, behavior modification, safe practices and a connection to what is most sacred and important to the client – whatever that may be.   It is an individual mandate that changes from client to client.  The CWC merely acts to facilitate a supporting environment so that the client can reach a sweet spot – whereby the ability to have the highest life quality balanced with a fulfilling purpose.  Wellness Coaching is the agent of change to help clients get to where they want to be and what they want to accomplish. 
Wellness Coaching is also seen by some as a combination of health coaching, holistic nutrition and many subdivisions – including physical activity, sleep and stress management

Wellness Coaches play a significant role in the management health and wellness for apparently healthy populations.   We are not therapists or counselors and we do not ‘treat’ clients.  Instead, we are leaders, guides, mentors and facilitators.   If this sounds like a description of you, then you are probably already coaching your loved ones and friends without knowing it!

There are no academic prerequisites or  requirements for this course.  Some of our competitors require an undergraduate degree in a relevant field to sit for a credential but we feel that is nothing more than an obstacle and barrier to some very bright, motivating and talented Coaches who simply want to help others.  If you have the will to coach and you want to help others, that is the core requirement for this course and will determine how well you perform while earning your credential. The details for this course can be found here.

All candidates must pass an online exam consisting of 75 questions; the pass threshold is 70% and you will have three opportunities to pass the exam if needed.  (Our pass rate is 68% for the first run; 87% for those who need to retake).  You will know your Exam results right away!  You can literally start coaching immediately!

Upon completion, you will be able to print and download a copy of your certificate immediately.  A hard copy version will be mailed to your physical address – be sure to double check the address you have in your student record.  In some instances, certificates can skip your Inbox, be sure to check SPAM and Junk mail folders if it is not sent to your normal Inbox.

Gain the confidence needed to lead and guide clients

Experiential training – based on what we have learned from pioneering leaders in the Wellness Space. 


In 2012, wellnesscoaches.org was launched to support Coaches in training as an education provider. Using the latest techniques in Coaching, our program is a balanced mix of both physical and emotional wellness. But our work was commissioned by others who lacked the technology to package the training used in their curriculum. Now, wellnesscoaches.org has partnered with Subject Matter Experts (SME’s) to deliver the latest strategies used in coaching, in a user-friendly format.
Our partners are an important aspect of our philosophy; not all Wellness Coach training is delivered in the same way with the same level of next-level information. Due to the high levels of expectations seen in Coach training, we set our bar high – meaning that we can offer training to nearly anyone who serves in the medical, health or fitness fields. Our work as Coaches is important, the professions we serve require that we bring our best. This has always been the core of our mission at wellnesscoaches.org.

Any coach training program has to engage the student. This means it has to include quality interactive content, provide open access (24/7/365), progress meters, clear and easy navigation and convenience for the learning to be maximized. This requires the use of learning theories for retention of content.
If you are curious about how we deliver our learning, you can check out a portion of the course by clicking below.  You will need to register/enroll in the Sample course prior to accessing the content.  You will be allowed one month of complimentary access.
